As usual, please check out the other posts we've shared this week - we love to hear your comments!

This is a slightly sleepy IMM, so please forgive the occasional pauses and confused looks. It was a long day.

Hard Bitten, by Chloe Neill

Thanks to Gollancz for:
Drink Deep, by Chloe Neill,
Wolfsbane and Mistletoe, edited by Charlaine Harris and Toni L. P. Kelner

Oh yay for the Chicagoland Vampire series! That's one of my very favorites, I'll be looking forward to your reviews of Hard Bitten and Drink Deep. I can't wait to read The Name of the Star, I've heard amazing things about that one:) Enjoy all those Ailsa!

Hard Bitten sounds like my kind of book. Thanks for the vlog. I am camera shy. So I don't do them.

Happy Reading!

I'm jealous of Wolfsbane and Mistletoe!!! (And In The Name Of the Star!! That one is high on my wishlist!)

Thanks for the comments guys!

Mandi - thanks for visiting! Name of the Star is great so far!

Cicely - It's going well so far :)

Anna - I know, I'm planning to!

Jess Day - thanks.

Jenny - I'll try and post reviews soon after I'm finished reading. I'm on The Name of the Star at the moment and I love it, very creepy sometimes, but a lot of fun too - I definitely recommend it! I'm planning on reading Hard Bitten next.

Mary @ SweepingMe - I was pretty camera shy when I started, and I feel awkward recording the vlogs sometimes, but I think it's something I've just adjusted to, seeing other people do them - I think it's kind of fun making them :) The first book in the series with Hard Bitten is Some Girls Bite - you should check them out! Thanks for visiting :)

Jac - I'll try and get reviews up soon :) The Name of the Star is excellent so far, I recommend it. Thanks for visiting!

Jenna - Thanks for the follow! I saw so many reviews for The Name of the Star saying people were loving it that I had to break my book buying ban and get it. So far it's totally worth it.

Great new reads!

I got The Name of the Star awhile back, but I admit, I'm too scared to read it. I read the first chapter and it creeped me out lol.

Also, your banner is cool. I was flinging my cursor around for like 3 minutes haha!

My mailbox is here!

Chelsey @ Starry Sky Books on November 21, 2011 at 7:26 AM said...

Thanks for stopping by! Hopefully we both enjoy The Name of the Star, though I think it'll be a while before I can get to it, we'll see. And my cover is the US edition. Happy reading! :)
